Pentax K-S2 Viewfinder exposure info not displaying

I sent my Pentax K-S2 off to get the Aperture block replaced. It came back taking good pictures, except that the exposure info that used to display in the viewfinder doesn't display, it is all dark in there. Do I need to send it back again, or is there a setting that I haven't clicked to turn on the display in the viewfinder?

I don't think there's a setting that disables the VF info. Sounds like they forgot to reattach some of the wiring, perhaps?

I would certainly contact the repair facility. They should restore this feature at no charge.

Even the most basic of post-fix testing would spot this omission, surely?

Connector could have come loose during shipment.

Send it back.
